issues that newly elected president obama and prime minister netanyahu have to address. and that's the iranian nuclear program, the conflict in syria, and the israeli-palestinian issue. and so even as we reported on the elections, we've been looking at those three issues. of course we talked to a lot of israelis. but yesterday for instance we went up to the golan heights which is you know, a land that the israelis captured from the syrians. and that is really where the two countries meet up. you can see how very close the conflict is you can hear the boom of firing from the other side. and looked at the defensive measures that israeli is taking to try to prevent any spillover. we also this week went into gaza just two months after the israeli-gaza conflict there, for example to assess how people are feeling and in particular about how they feel about the prospects for israeli-palestinian peace. so we hope to have some textured stories next week. >> brown: all right. we will look for those next week. margaret warner in jerusalem, thanks some of. >> warner: thank you jeff. >> brown

appointed by republican presidents-- said mr. obama had done an inappropriate end-run around the senate. but white house spokesman jay carney took issue with the ruling. >> the decision is novel and unprecedented. it contradicts 150 years of practice by democric and republican administrations. so we respectfully but strongly disagree with the rulings. accord together congressional research service something like 280 plus intrasession recess appointments by, again, democratting and republican administrations dating back to 1867. >> sreenivasan: if the decision stands, it could invalidate hundreds of decisions made by the labor board. moreover, the body would not have enough members to issue decisions, effectively shutting it down. the ruling also could spell trouble for richard cordray, the head of the consumer financial protection board. he was not part of this legal case, but he was appointed in the same manner on the same day. for more on all this, we turn to steven greenhouse of "the new york times." nice to be here. >> steven, just back us up a little bit. what are some of these dec

for president. you want boating up and down on a figure. you were voting on issues and the dominant issue was obama and as a scare, the stimulus committee increase in spending, the expansion of the government. or to put it in a more abstract and grand was the difference between federal and state which was tilting more toward state. when the question is put that way, the country shows itself to be center-right country. had republicans been able to duplicate those conditions, that framework in 2012, they would have won. but it is not the same election. 2010 is almost purely ideological election. perhaps the most ideological since 1980. then you get to 2010, when you have a personality involved and you have a figure represents one side. romney is a good man. i like him. i think he is an honorable man, and i think he would have made an excellent president. but he was a bad candidate particularly in an election that could have been one had been an election about ideas and philosophy. i think it would have been easily won had been about ideas and philosophy. but he was not the math -- he was no

's article latest issue touches on president obama's inaugural challenge on climate change in the end, no matter what kind of deal the administration makes with china, the harsh truth, it be enough to diffuse the climate crisis unless he takes a bold stance and solution like cap and tax or carbon tax and unless he limits the change in response to future generations and response to global warm iing requiring de of birth do something he has shown little inclination for, leading a massive grassroots campaign to rally the american people and overcome the fossil fuel industry and its republican allies. what has the president done and realistically possible the next four years. not the first thing was fuel efficiency standards for vehicles, a very big deal, will save 6 billion tons of carbon going into the atmosphere in the life of the program. that was a big deal and cut that deal in the bailout industry and had them over a big barrel. he has done a lot of investment with the green energy renewables. he hasn't really talked about it. that's a problem not just about rhetoric, helping the am

personally that we resolve this issue. i will do everything in my power to get a bill across the finish line. nothing short of bipartisan success is acceptable to me. president obama has already taken commendable executive action to stem deportation of upstanding young men and women brought to this country by their parents. i commend him for making immigration reform a top priority. president obama will place to the nation his own ideas during a visit to las vegas tomorrow. with bipartisan support billing in both houses of congress and a president who is eager to solve this issue, there is no reason we should not pass comprehensive immigration reform immediately. it will be good for our economy and good for families. successful immigration reform cannot be piecemeal and it must include a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented individuals in our country. legislation must craft a comprehensive solution that among other things continues to secure our borders, punishes unscrupulous employers who deploy immigrants. they have to learn english, work, pay taxes, stay out of trouble and then

on this really important and difficult policy issue. as nbc's michael isikoff reported, they have given over the database to the new advocacy group organizing for action. organizing for action is being run by the heavyweights of president obama's 2012 reelection campaign. their stated goal is to use the apparatus and the contact list and the volunteer energy that got president obama reelected, use that to get his agenda passed in his second term. nobody has ever done this before. but the obama folks are doing it. they have now started that effort with gun safety and with immigration. and if you think about just gun safety in particular, it makes sense, right? if it is traditionally too hard to get the politics of this done, then you better bring nontraditional means to bear if you want to get it done this time. and using the president's campaign apparatus to get it done is definitely a nontraditional way of doing it. but when organizing for action puts out what appears to be the very first solicitation to that giant list on a policy issue, when they urge the millions of recipients on the mai
